Phone Book Recycling Program


Clean outdated phone books can be delivered to either the Northern or Southern Recycling Centers year round.

Municipal collection programs are usually conducted from July through late September each year to coincide with the delivery of new phone books.

DO NOT place telephone books within your household reycling bins. Telephone books can be brought to either the Northern or Southern Recycling Centers to be recycled properly.

Telephone directories provide information on collection locations for recycling phone books.

For more information, contact your municipal recycling coordinator or the Ocean County Solid Waste Management Hotline at 1-800-55-RECYCLE.
